Last week I gave you the patterns and tutorials for making the halter top and lilac-colored pants for 18″ dolls, but I didn’t include the pattern for the gym bag and sandals. Well, today I’m including those items’ patterns. This tutorial is an older one, but today is the first time I’ve offered this gym bag pattern as a free printable PDF sewing pattern.
Scroll down to the second set of bullets for the free PDF sewing patterns.
If you won’t be traveling this holiday season due to COVID-19 and travel restrictions in your area, you can at least sew a little overnight bag for your children or grandchildren. That way they can play pretend, as if they were traveling for the holidays!
Special thanks to Brian Garcia for donating this pattern (which is his own design with only a few tweaks from me) to ChellyWood.com. He wanted to make sure people all over the world would have access to his unique miniature duffle bag / gym bag / overnight bag for crafting and sewing purposes. Thank you so much for sharing your creation with us, Brian! It’s a neat pattern!
